Write in and WIN! While hunting unsuccessfully for some suitable curtains, I found a duvet that I liked the look of instead. I bought two of them and used them to make two sets of curtains, plus some matching cushions for my sofa. Sharon Vincent
I had a few scraps of tweed left over from a project – since I don’t like to throw anything away, I used them to make an appliqué cushion with a Scottish cow design, plus a cute owl door stop.
I made this red dress to wear at my nephew’s wedding recently. It was really easy to sew and the finished dress looks lovely when it’s on! Mel Sutton
My Nan taught me to knit, crochet and embroider when I was growing up. When she passed away a few years back, my Grandad let me have all her crafting bits, including her trusty Jones sewing machine. Once our boys settled into school, I decided to take some sewing lessons using another of my Nan’s machines, a little electric Singer. I love sewing and have made some bits and bobs that I am proud of... hopefully my Nan would be too. Emma Mills
I was inspired by a friend’s love of Scottie dogs and Union Flag items to make this bag for her from the pattern featured in the May issue of Sew. I’d spotted a fat quarter bundle with the Scottie dog material in Aldi and snapped up a couple – this was the perfect make to use them for. I just need to make one for myself now! Gerry Savill
